Whereas millions of Americans are victims of crime each year; Whereas many of those crime victims are traumatized further by the physical, psychological, and financial burdens resulting from their victimizations; Whereas the sensitivity of our Nation's criminal justice system must be improved when working with crime victims and their families; Whereas much progress has been made to correct these injustices by implementing in the Federal, State, local, and private sectors the recommendations of the President's Task Force on Victims of Crime; and Whereas continuation of these efforts must be encouraged to ensure the restoration of balance to our Nation's criminal justice system and the fair and compassionate treatment of crime victims and their families: Now, therefore, be it Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That the week of April 9, 1989, is designated as `Crime Victims Week', and the President is authorized and requested to issue a proclamation calling upon the people of the United States to observe such week with appropriate programs, ceremonies, and activities.
